Make Chic Happen: Master the Mix

The best things about this time of year: tomatoes at the farmer’s market, rich sunsets, and- most of all- new fall clothes. Our stylist, Sher, breaks down the season’s best go-to looks, and exactly how to wear them with anything, everything and each other. Watch and become a master mixologist. No license needed.

1: The Denim Peplum Jacket

Oh denim! Don’t ask me how many denim jackets I have- it’s a lot. But this one is like nothing else I have in my closet. Why? Because it is so versatile; it’s got the peplum, which draws in your waist. It’s perfect over a pair of pants or a pencil skirt. And here’s the best part: you can unzip the bottom and it becomes a little bolero jacket. So if you want to wear it to the theater, (I don’t know about you, but I’m always cold) if you want to wear it to a restaurant, if you want to wear a sleeveless sundress, and but need some stylish arm coverage: this is the denim jacket for you.

2: The Side Button Nicolette Pullover

Click to buy: Side-Button Nicolette Pullover, Soft Skimmer Pants, Carmela Belt, Alexis Statement Earrings.

In my twenty years at Chico’s this is probably my favorite little knit sweater ever. You can change it up by: rolling up the sleeves, tucking it completely in, tucking it in the front only,or leaving it out for a really “cool girl” look.

3: The Everyday Peasant Top

Click to buy: Everyday Peasant Top, Drapey Wide-Leg Pants, Deconstructed Zip Jeggings, Alexis Long Necklace, Sofia Hoop Earrings.

This is that feminine, awesome little peasant looking top that I am always looking for. I just feel great it in it. It’s got an elastic bottom, so it gives me a waistline, and I don’t have to tuck it in if I don’t want to. But, I can tuck it in if I feel like it. It’s so pretty, that I feel like such a girl when I wear it! There is nothing better about being a girl than being a girl! Try it with this season’s wide legged pant. It’s gorgeous!

4: The Leopard Scarf

Click to buy: Margot Scarf.

Okay this is one of the key pieces to becoming a true mixologist: Put it in your hair, around your neck, around your waist, like a belt. My favorite application: I matched it up with this soft leopard top and it makes it look like a beautiful blouse. It’s seriously the hardest working piece in my closet right now. Did I mention it goes with everything? It does. Leopard is my favorite color.

5: The Faux Suede Jacket

Click to buy: Faux-Suede Jacket, Deconstructed Zip Jeggins, Marley Earrings, Marley Textured Link Necklace, Marley Cuff.

I have never been on a motorcycle; I wouldn’t dream of it- that helmet would destroy my hair, but I love to wear a motorcycle jacket just to pretend. This version is spectacular. It’s an amazing cobalt blue, so you can wear it with jeans, or you can wear it with a cream pant and really mix it up. You can dress it up with heels, or use it to dress up a more casual look, like that distressed denim. It works both ways! When I wear this jacket, I feel like people are looking at me and thinking “that girl knows what’s happening…”  It’s just cool.

    This is awesome – can you put up some items for us slightly top heavy customers. Not all of your customers are thin.

    1. Carol Peck

      I agree with Jen….not everyone is pencil thin. I love Chico’s clothing…over 15 years now and happy Chico’s is finally in Canada. I love Travelers because it is forgiving, elastic waist, etc.but certainly wouldn’t be tucking anything at the waistline.

    I’ve been looking for the perfect red dress to dress up or down. Not too short and not sleeveless (I’m almost 70 and so are my upper arms!) Would like a true red.

    I love Chicos with one major exception.
    Certain pants fit when purchased only
    to literly GROW after a few wearings.

    this go down. You must know what I mean
    they know it at your stores in KY.

    your visitors? Is going to be back frequently in order to check out new posts

  8. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or
    did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like
    this one these days.

  9. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for rookie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  10. Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary
    daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
    tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  11. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that
    I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!

  12. I pay a visit daily some websites and information sites to read content, except this webpage offers quality based content.

  13. Heya i’m for the primary time here. I came across this board and I to find It really helpful & it helped me
    out much. I hope to present one thing again and help others such as you aided me.

  14. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

  15. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
